Islam

We highlight the growing influence of Islam in society, and expose the damage that it does.

As our nation drifts from its Christian roots, an alternative religion – Islam – is quickly taking its place. There are now over 3.3 million Muslims living in this nation, and if Islam continues to grow at its current rate, by 2030 Muslims could make up 8% of the population.

Yet despite the relatively small portion of the population that self-identify as Muslim, Islam has a disproportionate influence on our society. But this doesn’t lead to freedom or flourishing – in fact, for many it leads to oppression.

Many sharia councils and courts are operating in the UK, effectively creating a parallel legal system which is incompatible with basic freedoms and human rights. Sharia councils have been found to discriminate against women, many of whom are under significant community pressure to accept their decisions.

The UK has promoted Islamic banking, issuing a government sharia bond, while multiple supermarket and restaurant chains also sell halal meat, often without labelling it.

Many political parties and other organisations have accepted a definition of Islamophobia that seriously inhibits free speech in relation to Islam, effectively creating a new blasphemy law in the UK.

Christian Concern seeks to love Muslims, while exposing the true nature of Islam. We seek to show how Christianity alone provides the basis for a free society that protects its most vulnerable members.
